Rick was awesome! He showed up early and was extremely nice. Before he even started on my horse’s feet, he took the time to get to know her and let her get to know him as well. He was very personable and helpful. Anytime my horse jerked away or got uncomfortable, instead of getting mad, he just put her foot down and patted her and talked to her a bit until she calmed down. He did an amazing job on her shoes and was very “wallet friendly”. When he was done, he had me lunge her to make sure she was sound and nothing was wrong. Then he stayed for about 30 extra minutes and just talked to my friend and I. I would recommend Rick to anyone and everyone looking for a farrier. He takes the time to get to know your horse instead of just getting down to business and asking for money. He was absolutely amazing. On a scale of 1-10 I give him a 20!
